The paper attempts to identify the lacunae of the LIS departments in Indian universities in providing competent professionals to satisfy the emerging job market. Further, the paper directly suggests a rework on the curricula, which needs immediate restructuring of the syllabuses across the universities in order to bridge the gap between the course content (what is taught) and job descriptions (what is required) in different fields. The idea is to match the curricula with the emerging job descriptions of LIS professionals today to produce quality and competent output.
